Great Ideas for Teaching and Learning Symposium

Be sure to mark January 4, 2022 on your calendar as the day for this year’s Great Ideas for Teaching and Learning Symposium. The theme for this year’s event is “Teaching the Whole Student”. Sessions will focus on how faculty and staff have been and can continue to adjust approaches to supporting students with a more expanded understanding of the challenges students are dealing with both in and out of the classroom.

This year’s event will be held virtually, and kick off with an opening plenary workshop facilitated by Dr. Tracie Addy, Associate Dean of Teaching & Learning at Lafayette College and co-author of What Inclusive Instructors Do. In her session, “What Inclusive Instructors Do: Teaching the Whole Student,” Dr. Addy will engage participants in case-based discussions using scenarios relevant to teaching during the current times, and ultimately build frameworks for what it means to teach the whole student within their own contexts here at Boise State.

Submit a Proposal for a Lightning Talk!

The Center for Teaching Learning welcomes lightning talk proposals for the 2022 Great Ideas for Teaching and Learning Symposium on Tuesday, January 4. Recognizing the extraordinary demands of the current academic year, and in hopes of making it easier for more educators to share their strategies, we have adopted a lightning talk format (5 minute talk, 5-minute Q&A) for this year’s presentations. We invite both formal, empirical scholarship and less formal presentations that draw on reflection, lived experience, and natural experiments. For more information, and to submit a proposal, please visit our Great Ideas Symposium Call for Lightning Talks page.
